While the picture, sound, and even smart features of many of the greatest TVs have wowed me, there’s one drawback that seems to apply to all of them: size. There are 85- to 88-inch TVs available for purchase at Best Buy and other retail outlets, but this isn’t the largest you can find.
LG’s G2 OLED TV and Samsung’s Micro LED televisions are both available, but they require a special order and neither is affordable. A projector is your best bet if you need a screen larger than 100 inches. I was almost deterred from purchasing a TV because of a projector not long ago.
My opinion of projectors has been bolstered by the Hisense L9G 4K Laser TV, which I saw in action. The geometry of the projected image is altered by the short-throw projector’s design to look as a regular rectangle on the wall or projection screen even when it is placed near to the wall.
Many short-throw projectors are available, although there aren’t as many branded Laser TVs like Hisense’s as there are other brands. To be classified as a Laser TV, a projector’s display must be visible both during the day and at night. A 20,000-hour minimum life expectancy is required for the internal light source. As long as a conventional TV can last for, a Laser TV wouldn’t be a replacement for the best OLED or QLED TVs – it would be your television.
The Hisense L9G 4K Laser TV would look great mounted on my living room wall, allowing me to enjoy shows, movies, and sporting events on the biggest screen imaginable. As a result, I was able to watch a portion of a soccer match on it, and I was amazed by the sharpness of the images and how well they held up in a natural light environment. The L9G claims a brightness of 3,000 lumens.
Harman Kardon speakers with Dolby Atmos and a 40-watt power supply also provided a powerful audio experience. The L9audio G’s performance is superb even without external speakers, unlike standard flat-screen TVs, which have restricted sound capabilities, making the finest soundbars necessary.
The cost may be my main stumbling block. For $5,499, you can get a 100-inch Hisense L9G 4K Laser TV, while the 120-inch model costs $5,999. As the most expensive Hisense 2022 TV, the L9G is also the most costly short-throw projector from LG (including the Hisense U8H Mini LED TV I also demoed.)
In the context of the greatest Samsung TVs, best LG TVs and best Sony TVs’ most expensive settings, it doesn’t seem out of the ordinary for a 100-inch TV to cost that much. Prices for the 85-inch Samsung 4K Neo QLED TV QN90B are $5,000 and $8,500 respectively, while LG’s 83-inch G2 OLED TV is $6,499. In other words, if you’re going to spend money on a large television, you might as well get the most expensive one you can afford. Only if your living space can accommodate it.
